COVID-19 virus infection differs among people. Some people have no or mild symptoms. For others, COVID-19 is life threatening and causes damage to the body s organs. Researchers want to better understand the virus to learn how to kill it.
To understand how the COVID-19 virus causes wide differences in how sick one can become from the infection.
People ages 18-80 with COVID-19 infection
Participants will be screened with a review of their medical records.
Participants who enter the study at the beginning of their COVID-19 infection will stay in the hospital until they are healthy enough to go home. Those who enter after they have recovered may need to stay in the hospital 1-2 nights to perform the study tests.
Participants will have MRI and CT scans of the brain, heart, and lungs. They will lie in a machine that takes pictures of the body. For the MRI, soft padding or a coil will be placed around their head and chest. They may receive a dye injected into a vein.
Participants will have an ultrasound of the kidneys and heart.
Participants will provide blood and urine samples. They will provide nasal swabs.
Participants will have a bronchoscopy. A thin tube will be placed through the nose or mouth into the airway. Saltwater will be squirted into the lungs and removed by suction.
Participants may provide a spinal fluid sample. A needle injected into the spinal canal will obtain fluid.
Participants will have lung and heart function tests.
At various points after recovery, participants will repeat many of these tests.

There is little sequential, methodically collected data on patients with COVID-19 that can be correlated with the severity of disease or the long-term sequelae. Such information is necessary to understand how to most logically intervene with directly acting antiviral agents and immunologic response modifiers.
The variability of the clinical course of patients who may be asymptomatic throughout their clinical course to those patients who develop progressive multisystem organ failure represents a challenge to understand the host and viral factors that result in these dramatically different outcomes.
This protocol will enroll patients to the Clinical Center in a longitudinal study using granular clinical, laboratory, and imaging data including extensive pulmonary and cardiac functional assessments, neurologic evaluation, comprehensive immunologic evaluations, and innovative imaging. In patients with COVID-19 infection, linking sequential analysis of blood, urine and bronchoalveolar lavage with simultaneous cardiopulmonary imaging can provide novel insights into mechanisms associated with the initiation, progression and resolution of lung, cardiac and systemic inflammation. These mechanisms are presumed to be essential in the pathogenesis and survival from this infection. This information will help guide diagnostic and therapeutic innovation and assess long-term consequences of this infection.
